clutch wierd after long drive
I've had no problem with the clutch...except for the occational push to get it in 1st.
I've noticed lately that after a long drive on the highway (a couple of hours) and I go to downshift (like when downshifting getting off an exit) the clutch pedal feels wierd. It feels a little stiff/heavy... but it works fine.
I pull the stick out of gear, it goes away. Clutch returns as normal. Never to be seen again.
If I keep it in the same gear, I can keep pressing the clutch in and out and it continues to feel heavy. The second I pull it out of gear ( in this case 5th) then it goes away.
Only happens on a long trip. I drive it back and forth to work every day in highway/city traffic and it never happens.
I'm stumped... Is it heat? Maybe time for a fluid change? I'm hoping it's not the slave cylinder.... but I'd see it happen more than just during a long drive if it was?
